    I don't even use the search function in this forum , it's wonky at best.
    Use Google and add "teak door forum" after it.
    Like "Why do I get this message while trying to Search teak door forum "
    You be amazed how well it works

    Because there is no admin or "Tech guy" at TD to fix it.

    The admin password seems to have gone to the grave with xcyte.

    RIP Admin Password.

    ^ Can't VBulletin provide support to help with this?

    I found this on one of their support forums:

    Here are the instructions on how to restore an admin account for when you cannot access the old admin account, have lost the password, got hacked, or you can't receive the lost password email from http://www.YOUR-DOMAIN.com/YOUR-FORUM-DIR/lostpw


    Note: Change that link to your forum URL of course.

    Browse to your forum and log out if you aren't already. Register as a new user and login as this user.

    In vBulletin's .zip file you can find a directory called 'do_not_upload/'. Inside this directory is a file called 'tools.php'. Upload this file into your forum's /core/admincp/ directory. You should also upload the /core/install/ directory from the /upload/ folder.

    Then go to the /admincp/tools.php file with your browser.

    At the bottom of the tools page is an option to 'Reset Admin Access'. Run it with the just newly registered username.

    Then delete the tools.php file, and the /core/install folder. It is a potential security risk if you leave it on-line.

    You have just made yourself admin. And you need this because you should now login to the admincp/ and find the user who's password you've lost. Search for this user and when found you will see the whole profile. Including a password field.

    Set a new password.

    Go to the main forum and log out as the new user, and try to login with the old admin account. This should work now.

    When it works, go back into the admin control panel and find the newly registered user. The profile page will have a dropdown in the top, from there select delete and delete the temporary admin.

    Is it of use to anyone?

    With access to the CPanel or database it would be fairly easy to do, Troy, but it appears nobody here has access to those either, so that ^ would not be possible.

    One has to wonder about the ownership of the forum and who is paying for the hosting and domain renewal. I wonder because I would have thought whoever is doing the paying would be in touch with the hosting company and the hosting company would be able to provide log-in details and a password for the CPanel. Once you have that, solving the no-Admin issue is a doddle.

    Meaning someone paid a bill. If they paid a bill they ought to be able to take control. But I guess they need to prove ownership first.
